How many clubs are there on the south coast within a goal kick of Bournemouth?

don’t stray too far Eddie, you might get scared.

I am not that sure he is any good, to be honest. Also, remember Mappies assertion that a managers influence is, at best, overstated.

He was unsettled because his mother died, after a short term illness, when he was there. His world apparently fell apart and moving back to Bournemouth to be near his family helped him cope with it.

May well have been a factor but he continued to manage Burnley 6 months after his mother passed away.

I wasn’t aware of that. I take back what I said earlier.

I called this last week, that his job was on the line because the impact of relegation on Bournemouth financially could be devastating. Didn't they exceed FFP when they got promoted too?

He has done a remarkable job considering the position they were in when he returned after leaving Burnley and if you told any Bournemouth fan at that time that they would be playing in the Premier League in the future you would have been laughed at.Seems to be a decent guy also and deserves better than some of the derogatory remarks on here.

He has been a fantastic manager for Bournemouth and had them punching way above their weight. He was touted as a possible England manager at one point. I hope he does well in the future.

The remarks are de rigueur from some of the experts on here.

Howe built the nucleus of Dyche's promotion winning team (the first time he got them up). He bought players like Ben Mee, Trippier, Ings and Charlie Austin so I would argue that he would have eventually succeeded at Burnley.

As someone mentioned he left Burnley for family reasons rather than him not liking the cold weather up north.

Hes done a superb job with a club who for years bumped about in the lower divisions.
A tiny ground by Premier standards
Clearly not able to sustain itself through the gate without Sky and Prem big bucks.
Players will desert like rats off a sinking ship.
The Cherries fans have had a good few years.
The reality outside the bubble will bring them down to earth quickly.
Don’t they have a wealthy backer to fund them?

If so, he will put two fingers up at the EFL’s FFP and financial back them into the top flight. They could be in a better financial positing than us. I hope it doesn’t work that way.
